For a compact, multifunctional printer, the Dell 926 is an average working machine. With a 20 page per minute output, it fulfills all the functions you would expect from a low-cost all-in-one printer, such as print, copy, scan , and e-fax. However, the Dell 926 ink printer falls short of the earlier model it replaces.
It has a sleek, compact design and features built-in media card slots and a USB port on the front to make transferring photos directly to the printer simple and fast. The maximum print resolution is 4800 x 1200 dpi and can produce borderless printing. It uses a standard two-tank Dell 926 inkjet cartridge system, but you can also replace these with a single Dell 926 ink cartridge specifically for photos. It can also print on glossy paper, banners, iron-on transfers, labels, transparencies, and envelopes.
When using the front-loading media or USB slots, the LCD control panel will automatically switch to photo-mode where you can instantly edit with auto-enhance or red-eye removal. The printer is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista and can be used as an e-fax with the bundled Dell Fax Solutions Software.
Overall, the Dell 926 inkjet printer did not do well with reviewers, noting its poor photo quality in comparison to the earlier model. While the cost is affordable, a better performing all-in-one printer can be found at the same low cost. However, its speed and PictBridge capabilities make it an easy-to-use and efficient printer.
The good news is that this is a reasonably priced printer for light-duty home use and its Dell 926 ink cartridges are equally low-cost. Its compact size and accessible front-loading media slots make this printer simple to use and is good for basic document printing, copying, and scanning, but if you want it for its photo printing capabilities you would do better with a lower or higher model.
